Vauxhall retailer

Careers with Vauxhall retailers

Vauxhall have more than 400 independent retail outlets across the UK. Work for a Vauxhall retailer and you can expect an exciting and rewarding career in a choice of different roles. Opportunities for professional training and development are supported by the GM Academy, and you’ll get support from a quality employer, too.


Sales consultant

When a customer enters a Vauxhall dealership, they enter the sales department. And it’s here where a retailer’s knowledgeable, friendly and professional sales consultants work.


As our vehicles become more technically advanced, we need to ensure we have the highest calibre of people selling them to our customers. As well as an in-depth knowledge of our product range, sales consultants need to be able to quickly tune in to what their customers are after, whether they’re looking for a new or a used Vauxhall.

Service advisor

In a showroom, customers needing maintenance or service for their Vauxhall will usually be directed to a service reception, again staffed by qualified and experienced people.


In our modern workshops, teams of technicians work closely with a retailer’s service advisors to ensure that any Vauxhall needing a service or repair is looked after and back on the road as quickly as possible.


Technicians are titled according to their experience, from service technician, to diagnostic technician and finally senior or master technician. Those new to the trade typically start as an apprentice.

Parts advisor

Near the service reception in a Vauxhall showroom you’ll usually find the parts department. Here, retail and trade customers can talk to knowledgeable staff to organise replacement parts or approved accessories.

Retailer Apprenticeships

As an apprentice in our Vauxhall Retailer network, you'll be part of a team of like-minded people who successfully qualify year after year. You'll work exclusively on the latest Vauxhall products and receive intensive training through the GM Academy to prepare you for a career in the motor industry.


We offer six apprenticeships, so no matter what type of automotive career you're interested in, we have one for you.

Other roles

Accountants, administrators, body repair specialists, business managers – they all work for Vauxhall retailers, and there are many other roles available, too. If you’re interested in finding out about a position that isn’t outlined here, contact your local Vauxhall Retailer.
